Lately, I have been comparing discouragement to keeping water in a colander… too many holes to plug, not enough fingers.
Then I began thinking about that analogy.
Why am I trying to plug up a colander?
When you use a colander, the GOAL is to LET GO of whatever (potentially) hot, messy liquid that is part of the item that stays in the apparatus. The food that stays INSIDE the colander is the good part. The rest goes down the drain.
I need to let go of the hot messes and keep what is good. Eternally good.
